1And David consulted with the captains of thousands and hundreds, and with every leader. 2And David said unto all the congregation of Israel, If it seem good unto you, and that it be of the LORD our God, let us send abroad unto our brethren every where, that are left in all the land of Israel, and with them also to the priests and Levites which are in their cities and suburbs, that they may gather themselves unto us:13.2 send…: Heb. break forth and send13.2 in their…: Heb. in the cities of their suburbs 3And let us bring again the ark of our God to us: for we enquired not at it in the days of Saul.13.3 bring…: Heb. bring about 4And all the congregation said that they would do so: for the thing was right in the eyes of all the people. 5So David gathered all Israel together, from Shihor of Egypt even unto the entering of Hemath, to bring the ark of God from Kirjath-jearim. 6And David went up, and all Israel, to Baalah, that is, to Kirjath-jearim, which belonged to Judah, to bring up thence the ark of God the LORD, that dwelleth between the cherubims, whose name is called on it. 7And they carried the ark of God in a new cart out of the house of Abinadab: and Uzza and Ahio drave the cart.13.7 carried…: Heb. made the ark to ride 8And David and all Israel played before God with all their might, and with singing, and with harps, and with psalteries, and with timbrels, and with cymbals, and with trumpets.13.8 singing: Heb. songs
9¶ And when they came unto the threshingfloor of Chidon, Uzza put forth his hand to hold the ark; for the oxen stumbled.13.9 Chidon: also called Nachon13.9 stumbled: or, shook it 10And the anger of the LORD was kindled against Uzza, and he smote him, because he put his hand to the ark: and there he died before God. 11And David was displeased, because the LORD had made a breach upon Uzza: wherefore that place is called Perez-uzza to this day.13.11 Perez-uzza: that is, The breach of Uzza 12And David was afraid of God that day, saying, How shall I bring the ark of God home to me? 13So David brought not the ark home to himself to the city of David, but carried it aside into the house of Obed-edom the Gittite.13.13 brought: Heb. removed 14And the ark of God remained with the family of Obed-edom in his house three months. And the LORD blessed the house of Obed-edom, and all that he had.
Abweretsanso Bokosi la Chipangano
1Davide anakambirana ndi akuluakulu ake, atsogoleri a anthu 1,000 ndi atsogoleri a anthu 100. 2Ndipo anati kwa gulu lonse la Israeli, “Ngati kukukomerani komanso ngati chili chifuniro cha Yehova Mulungu wathu, tiyeni titumize uthenga kulikonse kumene kuli abale athu ena onse ku dziko lonse la Israeli ndiponso kwa ansembe ndi Alevi amene ali nawo mʼmidzi yawo ndi madera odyetsera ziweto, kuti abwere adzakhale nafe. 3Tiyeni tibweretsenso Bokosi la Mulungu wathu kuno kwathu, pakuti nthawi ya Sauli sitinafunse za bokosili.” 4Gulu lonse linavomereza izi, pakuti anthu onse anaona kuti kunali kofunika kutero.
5Kotero Davide anasonkhanitsa Aisraeli onse, kuchokera ku mtsinje wa Sihori ku Igupto mpaka ku Lebo Hamati, kuti abweretse Bokosi la Mulungu kuchokera ku Kiriati-Yearimu. 6Davide pamodzi ndi Aisraeli onse anapita ku Baalahi (Kiriati-Yearimu) ku Yuda kukatenga Bokosi la Yehova Mulungu, amene amakhala pakati pa akerubi. Limeneli ndiye Bokosi la Chipangano lomwe limadziwika ndi Dzina lake.
7Iwo anachotsa Bokosi la Mulungu ku nyumba ya Abinadabu pa ngolo yatsopano. Uza ndi Ahiyo ndiwo ankayendetsa ngoloyo. 8Davide pamodzi ndi Aisraeli onse ankakondwerera ndi mphamvu zawo zonse pamaso pa Mulungu, poyimba nyimbo pogwiritsa ntchito azeze, apangwe, matambolini, maseche ndi malipenga.
9Atafika pa malo opunthira tirigu ku Kidoni, Uza anatambalitsa dzanja lake kuti agwire bokosilo, chifukwa ngʼombe zinkafuna kugwa. 10Yehova anapsera mtima Uza ndipo anamukantha chifukwa chogwira bokosilo. Choncho iyeyo anafera pomwepo pamaso pa Mulungu.
11Ndipo Davide anakhumudwa chifukwa Yehova anakantha Uza ndipo mpaka lero malowo amatchedwa Perezi Uza.
12Tsiku limenelo Davide anachita mantha ndi Mulungu ndipo anafunsa kuti, “Kodi Bokosi la Mulungu lingafike bwanji kwathu?” 13Iye sanapitenso nalo Bokosi la Mulungu ku Mzinda wa Davide. Mʼmalo mwake anapita nalo ku nyumba ya Obedi-Edomu Mgiti. 14Ndipo Bokosi la Mulungu linakhala mʼbanja la Obedi-Edomu mʼnyumba mwake kwa miyezi itatu ndipo Yehova anadalitsa nyumba yake ndi chilichonse chimene anali nacho.
